When it’s time to move from the family home into a memory care facility, there is much to consider. You will want your loved one to be in a safe environment with freedom to move around. Your parent or spouse will want to be treated with dignity and respect. These are just a few of the things your loved one deserves from a memory care environment.
What To Expect
Moving to a new home can be hard, especially when people have dementia, Alzheimer’s or other cognitive decline. Senior living facilities in Decatur, GA, have made it a bit easier with new techniques to help your loved one adjust to this new chapter in their life. Beautiful living accommodations, enclosed courtyards to stroll, and plenty of social interaction opportunities will help as your parent or spouse integrates into this new home.
Memory centers set up as nurseries, office desks or nurses’ stations, will help those who once served as a nurse or nanny or secretary. They can relive part of their life that still remains in the recesses of their memory. This helps people to reconnect and feel valuable and useful again.
Seniors are encouraged to socialize with seating areas arranged to comfortably chat, play checkers or watch TV with others. In the dining area tables are arranged so that everyone can enjoy a meal with friends, just like other times in their life. Senior living facilities in Decatur, GA, are using these new concepts to help those with memory impairment live the best life possible, without feeling isolated.
There are plenty of activities to engage your loved one. Play bingo or paint. Join an exercise class. Stroll through the enclosed gardens or plant flowers in the raised beds. If your husband or wife loves animals they can watch and feed the birds. There are also pet-friendly rooms for those who want to bring their beloved cat or dog with them.
